Kirkpatrick Family Altona Tennis Club
Our family has been with Vida Tennis West (Altona) for 6 years, we have found Mark and his team to be professional, friendly and engaging. Along side excellent tuition in all facets of the tennis game, they have provided opportunities to make new friendships and foster a love of tennis for all generations. Mark is an exceptional coach who has a natural ability when communicating with children, and manages to teach them life lessons whilst providing a solid platform from which to build their tennis game. Lessons take place in a relaxed atmosphere where the Vida Coaching Staff are all approachable, knowledgeable and eager. Our children have always looked forward to their tennis lessons, and have benefited enormously from their involvement with Vida Tennis West. We hope to continue this association for many years to come and would recommend them highly to anyone wishing to participate in tennis lessons.

Firstly we love that it is all about the kids enjoying what they are doing and not about the parents. Because of this I asked the boys what they thought. They both said “everything” first and then Ben mentioned that he liked learning how to hit a ball properly and Sam said playing matches. David and I love the coaches professionalism and easy going nature and how well you all genuinely relate to the children on their level. We also like that it will hopefully take them to having a great sport to play as adults.

We have had our three children (now 4th) having tennis lessons at the Vida Tennis since they were each about 4 years old. We’ve noticed that they are somehow more prepared to take on anything in other aspects of their lives, they are confident, coordinated going into other activities (karate, swimming) & not to mention starting school. They have all developed strong friendships with the other kids and its such a nice network of parents on the day we attend. We believe starting Tennis lessons at such a young age has help with their development in many areas of life. The older girls are now ready to play Hot Shots Competition and what is really great, is we get to see how they all are doing through the Certificate program.

The Vida Tennis team has been coaching our three daughters since we moved to Melbourne midway through 2010. In that time we have found the coaches have been not only been able to develop their tennis skills but also develop positive relationships with the kids and create a great environment for tennis. From a tennis view point the girls have been able to develop their tracking skills, technique and movement which have led to Alisia moving into junior competition. The environment is very welcoming not only for the kids but for us as parents. All the coaches are very approachable and communicate very well. As parents, we highly recommend Vida Tennis and their programs for your children.
